The closing of restaurants and long-term quarantine has pushed most families into perhaps an unfamiliar territory: home cooking. According to The Simple Dollar, the average American eats 4.2 commercially prepared meals per week. Locally, Business Insider states that the average New Mexican spends $2,560 per year dining out. For me personally, this time away from fast food and restaurant dining has compelled me to collaborate with my parents on making new foods with whatever ingredients we have in the pantry. For example, when we ran out of brown sugar, we found out that we could make our own by simply adding molasses to white sugar. Unique times like these call for unique measures. Spend some time this week making your favorite meal with whichever ingredients you have! It might just turn out tasting delicious.
